Ethiopia Consultation Report - July 2012


The overall aim of the study was to assess the effects of climate change on small-scale women farmers and pastoralists in Ethiopia, identify the coping strategies of the women, and explore possible ways in which their coping adaptive capacities can be enhanced. The study feeds into NEPAD’s program design work on the ‘African Gender, Climate Change and agriculture Support Program (GCCASP) which aims to support implementation of regional and country interventions to empower rural women, youth and other vulnerable sections of communities to better cope with the adverse impacts of climate change in Africa.
